Welcome to ak-builder.com!
The AK Master Mount™ patented optic mounts are unique and purpose built products for serious AK users. They are built as rugged as the AK rifle itself.
It's low profile with a low axis over bore. It also has our unique quick release "Dual Axis Locking" lever and our “2 in 1” top rail design that can accommodate picatinny or ACOG based optics. Made in the USA.
Its top Picatinny/ACOG rail is 3 inches long and sits at the back part of the dust cover. It is he perfect length for red dot or holographic sights. Its rail length was also specifically chosen so it would fit behind the rear sight that is often found in the middle of the dust cover of AK pistols such as the Yugo PAP 92/PAP 85 (when paired with our AK Master Mount side rail) or the Romanian Drako. It weighs 5 ounces.
AK optic mounts secure to an AK receiver’s side rail by one of two main methods. The first method uses a rotating lever that has a contoured portion to rotate and lock into a corresponding cut-out in the side rail. Many of the traditional com-bloc optic mounts utilized this design and are broadly referred to as SVD styled mounts. This method is primarily securing the optic mount in the horizontal axis.
The second method utilizes a rotating lever to deform the bottom part of the mount to “crimp” onto the side rail. These mounts are not really quick release despite their labeling as such, and this mount deformation makes it difficult to resize the mount to a different side rail on a different rifle. The more modern approach to this method is to use the rotating lever to manipulate a spring loaded clamping bar to compress against the receiver’s side rail to make it quick release capable. These style mounts are prone to “walking” along the side rail with heavy shooting sessions as they only secure the optic mount in the vertical axis.
We have combined these two techniques in our patented design to firmly secure our optic mount to an AK’s side rail in both the vertical and horizontal axis to make it Dual Axis Locking. This secure attachment maintains optics zero even with sustained heavy shooting sessions. Our clamping bar is also longer than the other optics mounts on the market to provide additional clamping surface contact, and we use two springs in the clamping bar mechanism for increased clamping bar stability and true quick release capability.
